    Do you mean you're looking at buying it as a replacement for your current car?
    It looks good,and has all of the right history and parts,plus a pretty conservative remap,so it basically looks like a good clean car,and should be fine.
    Actually looks like mine but minus all the dirt...lol.

    I would love a set of turinis but my car is lowered 25mm and they are an 8' rim with offset of 42 which means they would stick out an extra 18mm. I currently have 10mm spacers on and had to remove rear bumper screw to stop rubbing so can't see how I could come out 8mm further without problems. You could run with more negative rear camber but I imagine tyres would wear on inside edges.
    That S3 does look good though but I imagine it would rub badly at the back!

    LOL...at my age I'm easily confused!
    Seriously though,the spec does look good,and if you get your car to that sort of level,then I'm sure you'd be very happy with it.

    The black wheels look awful, the rest is nice.

    mjr901 my garage where I live are forge distributors and they have a few prototype parts off them to test and run and I told him about your intercooler and he said that he was told of it but can't say much so how long are we going to have to wait haha.

    I'm in exactly the same boat as you lot!! apart from the fact i literally have the newly designed intercooler......

    They basically said, heres your car, its got the newly designed Forge intercooler for the later models..... and heres 22bhp.

    I can show you more pictures of that, no problem....

    But the DV system has changed, and i im strictly told to keep quiet. :( theres nothing i'd like more than to tell the world that the later 8P's have been upgraded and I'm the only one with this, but no, i've got to tease you for the time being... :(

    Sounds like an interesting product.. 'Later models' meaning from which year onwards?
